In this recipe, we will extract user-defined assemblies and resave these back to the filesystem as DLLs.

Getting ready

  1. Open PowerShell ISE as an administrator.
  2. Import the SQLPS module as follows:
    #import SQL Server module
    Import-Module SQLPS -DisableNameChecking
  3. First, we will create a bcp format file. Add the following script and run it:
    $VerbosePreference = "Continue" $instanceName = "localhost" $timestamp = Get-Date -format "yyyy-MMM-dd-hhmmtt" $emptyBLOB = "SampleDB.dbo.EmptyBLOB" ...
